Michigan right back in it

September, 10, 2011
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- We've seen this story before, haven't we? Notre Dame takes a big lead, can't hold it and Michigan rallies for the victory.

The Wolverines would be very happy for a rerun tonight. And it might just happen.

The Irish led 24-7 going into the fourth quarter, but Michigan has rallied in a big way. A couple of big plays, including a 77-yard Denard Robinson pass as Kapron Lewis-Moore had a hold of his ankles, have helped the Wolverines close the gap to 24-21. Mostly, though, the defense has stepped up and played better up front, giving Robinson and company a chance to get back into the game.

As bad as Robinson and the passing game looked there for a while, he now has two touchdown throws and 165 yards through the air. So things can change quickly. As they often do with Notre Dame and Michigan.
